Look out -- here comes Marvel's Spider-Man. The long-awaited super hero blockbuster from Insomniac Games is finally here, and we imagine a lot of people will be web slinging through NYC and taking down petty thugs this weekend. Thwip!

I've already made a massive dent in Marvel's Spider-Man, but the game is so hard to put down that I can't see myself playing anything else over the weekend. Maybe I'll carry on with the campaign in DOOM, or see if I can get a little further in Dead Cells. Ah, who am I kidding, I'm just going to play Spider-Man.

Right now I’m still loving Dragon Quest XI. This entry is finally one that feels like it belongs in the modern age, with updated mechanics left and right, and visuals that make me want to cry. I’ll never stop playing this game.

While I cry over my cancelled Marvel's Spider-Man pre-order and ignore everything everyone is posting on social media, I’ll be consoling myself by continuing to make poor decisions in Detroit: Become Human. Evidently, quick, informed decisions are not something I’m good at, but despite that I’m really enjoying the experience so far!

To build the hype before I finally play Marvel's Spider-Man, I'm going to get a retro perspective by watching a YouTube playthrough of SEGA's 1991 System 32 arcade game, Spider-Man: The Video Game, and I'll also enjoy a second read of Glen Fox's 9/10 Push Square review of Insomniac Games' latest excellent release.

I'll be juggling my time between Marvel's Spider-Man, Destiny 2: Forsaken, and Immortal: Unchained this weekend. I desperately want to level my Guardian up a ton in order to have the chance of being raid ready for the 14th, but I just can't ignore the likes of the web-slinger.

I might be one of the only gamers in the world right now who isn’t playing Marvel's Spider-Man, but I can’t help it! I’m still so invested in Planet Alpha. For a short indie game, it holds a tremendous number of secrets, which I have been enjoying uncovering. I will eventually get into Spider-Man, but for now my time is being spent in another universe.
